About Alun & Sheelagh Crewe
Alun and Sheelagh both hail from Wales, Sheelagh from Aberystwyth, Alun from Newport. We have both lived abroad during our working lives but wanted a base back in the UK that we could return to whenever we had a spare weekend. We fell in love with the Isle of Wight when visiting relatives there. Our goal, in sharing Smugglers with guests is to provide a home-from-home. A place where you can immediately relax, feel at home, and start your holiday. We hope to have you as our guests and look forward to meeting you. Alun & Sheelagh Crewe

Why Alun & Sheelagh Crewe chose Ventnor
We spent a long time looking for our perfect getaway retreat on the Isle of Wight. We had homed in on Vetnor as one of our favourite places to be. The strong community feeling and lively town centre, the beauty of the beach and the famous 'microclimate' that promotes almost tropical weather and the friendly welcome in every pub and restuarant we entered. All of these things led us to focus our search in Ventnor. We looked at, literally, dozens of houses before falling in love with 'Smugglers'. It's character and homely feel together with being on a quiet street yet only a few yards from the town centre made it an obvious choice. The previous owners, Matt and Sally Clark, had sepnt a lot of time restoring and improving the cottage with high-quality modern appliances and decor that didn't detract from the 200 year-old character. It's a philosophy we intend to continue.
What makes this Cottage unique
Smugglers is a 4-bedroomed cottage only 50 metres from the town centre and 400 metres from the beach, yet in the very quiet street of Tulse Hill. It was dubbed 'Smugglers' because of the strange trap door in the back bedroom which we imagine was used when the Revenue Men came to call. It has a private enclosed rear garden with patio and chairs and a gas barbecue for outdoor dining and cozy log-burning fire for cool evenings. The kitchen is well-equipped with high-quality appliances and there are games, DVDs, Freesat and high-speed wireless internet connection for your entertainment. The central position means that the nearest restaurant (Foggs) is only 30m away and the nearest pub (The Crab and Lobster) only 100m.
